Seamlessly weaving together sports and style in support of a paws cause, animal-loving A-list athletes are preparing to command the catwalk as escorts for adorable, adoptable trend-setting tail-waggers and couture-conscious kitties in the hope that they will walk off the runway and straight into the heart and home of a forever parent.
According to CBS Baltimore, on August 26th Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith; Ravens’ offensive lineman Marshal Yanda and MMA fighter John Rallo will be among the more than 15 celebrity ‘Softies’ from the Show Your Soft Side campaign who will “make it work” for homeless animals during Pawject Runway, a Fido and feline fashion show to raise funds for animals in need of medical care at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS).
Along with the fashion show, attendees can also bid for items in an auction, tap their feet to the beat of live music by Lennon LaRicci and The Left Overs, drink a toast to the pets who posed in pet wear, and try for the chance to win a new Vespa.
Note: Ages 21 and over
Tickets: $25 (includes one signature drink)
When: August 26, 2013 from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Where: The Bay Cafe at 2809 Boston Street in Baltimore, Maryland
